Hello all,

I'm trying to do some macro shots.
According to the manual, the minimal distance for taking macroshots is about 12cm (4.7 inch).

When I try focussing on the subject, e.g. a small flower, within that distance, e.g. 15 cm, I get a blurred subject.

Help anyone??

Thanks in advance,

I find a combination of backingoff slightly and refocussing works well in macro mode.I read a tip somewhere to capture flowers with a fast shutter speed for a sharper picture.I used S mode while I was trying out Best (3:2) I will be using this setting from now on as the pics look far better when magnified.

S mode ,1/180th sec, F7.1 ,spot metering ,no editing, picture cooler on default settings
